Funky Chunky Café Gift Set Review #ChristmasGiftGuide

Funky Chunky popcorn gift set

We received the Funky Chunky Café Gift Set to review with my family. When it arrived, I opened it and saw this beautiful gift basket. My son’s were so excited to try it. The gift basket offered three different flavors of Café flavored popcorn, Caramel Latte, Dark Chocolate Mocha, and Vanilla Sweet Crème, along with along with two coffee mugs and a bag of chocolate covered multicolored espresso beans. It was beautifully wrapped when it arrived as well.

We started with the Vanilla Sweet Crème popcorn flavor. When we tried it we were surprised at the delicious flavor. The boys just loved it and said that it had a wonderful café flavor just like their favorite coffee drinks. It offered a rich and creamy flavor that was just delightful. We then tried the Caramel Latte, which also had an impressive flavor and was my favorite flavor. When we tried each flavor they were just amazing, each flavor was better then the last. The Dark Chocolate Mocha, was an explosion of coffee flavored treats. It was not over powering but just the perfect blend to make you want more. Funky Chunky Popcorn pulled out off a wonderful trio of flavors to place together in this gift basket.

We just loved the black coffee mugs that came with the gift basket as well. They are the perfect size to make your favorite coffee drinks in. The Coffee mugs were filled with the most delicious chocolate covered multicolored espresso beans. The chocolate covered multicolored espresso beans were the perfect compliment to this gift basket. They added the color to the basket as well as a whole different flavor that went along beautifully with the flavored popcorn that was included in the gift set. It is the perfect gift basket for the coffee lover in your life.

Funky Chunky Popcorn really pulled out all the stops in this gift set. In every bite there is a new flavor and each flavor makes your mouth just water with the excitement of the next bite. We didn’t find one color that we didn’t like, each flavor had it’s unique flavor that just exploded in your mouth and left you wanting more and more. It really is a great treat, perfect for watching your favorite movie with, when you have a sweet tooth attack, or when you just need a little something to snack on.

Funky Chunky Popcorn has a wide variety of flavors to choose from such as Peanut Butter Cup Popcorn, Sea salt Caramel Popcorn, Sweetheart Mix, Peppermint Bark, and so many other great flavors are available. They also offer Corporate gift sets as well as gift sets that everyone would love to receive. So this holiday season be sure to send a Funky Chunky Popcorn gift set to someone on your holiday list.

Shark Bite Game Review #ChristmasGiftGuide

Shark Bite game

I received the Shark Bite Game to review with my family. I read the instructions before calling the kids to play the game. I then put the game together and they were so excited to play, they love playing games as a family. They also love fishing so I was looking forward to what they thought of the game.

I placed all the fish, crabs and other pieces into the sharks mouth. Then we took turns with the youngest going first. She picked which piece she wanted to fish for and pulled up a crab. So I asked her what it was that she pulled out. She didn’t know it was a crab, so I explained it to her. She was all excited that she pulled the crab out. My other granddaughter played her turn and pulled out a fish, she was so excited that she got her fish without the shark taking it back by closing his mouth on it. We all went around and took our turns fishing. When the youngest granddaughter went to take her turn again the shark closed it’s mouth. Her reaction was just priceless! Her eyes got huge and she told the shark that the piece was hers not his! lol

Shark bite game 1

I set the game up again and we continued to play. I loved that the piece that would close the sharks mouth was always changing so you never knew which piece would cause the shark to close his mouth. The kids just loved the game and they were having so much fun playing and giggling while playing. It also was a great way to get the kids learning new animals that they hadn’t seen or heard about before. My youngest granddaughter just loves the crab so she goes to fish for it every time it’s her turn. The rest of the kids just choose one and then go fishing for it. We kept having so much fun and the kids wanted to keep playing. I really liked the game as well, it was easy to set up, the family had so much fun with it, it really kept their attention during the game they didn’t wonder off when it wasn’t their turn. You can purchase Shark Bite at Target, Walmart, Toys R Us, Amazon and your other favorite stores.

I also used the Shark Bite Game for educational purposes as well. We pulled out books that were about sharks, crabs, and different fish. I then let them pick about what they wanted me to teach them. We ended up going through just about all of the books because they were so excited to learn more about who lives in the sea. I love when we can play a game and I can turn it into an educational experience for the kids as well. It opened their eyes to a whole new world and they loved learning about them all.

Shark Bite is a great game for everyone in the family to play. It would be a great game for homeschoolers as well to use for education as well. The perfect gift for a birthday or the holidays as well!

Loving Earth Chocolate Bar Review #Chocoholics #ChocolateLovers

loving-earth Chocolate

I received Loving Earth Chocolate Bars to review with our family. Now, if you have been following our blog, you know that I am a chocoholic! However, that doesn’t mean that I’m not a picky chocoholic. 😉 I am so a picky chocoholic, it has to have the perfect chocolate texture, rich and creamy, and full of flavor.

We tried the Cheesecake flavored Loving Chocolate bar first. Now, cheesecake and chocolate together sounds just amazing doesn’t it? I put a square in my mouth and the flavor just exploded, it was the perfect texture, had a full rich flavor of chocolate with the added bonus of the cheesecake flavor that was pure perfection. My son’s just loved the taste and the flavors as well. It was a reward for a hard day of school work and they were completely on board with their reward. They loved the creamy chocolate, the way it slowly melted in their mouth, their eyes just closed as they enjoyed it.

I also love that Loving Earth has some delicious recipes like Chocolate Raspberry Mousse, Peanut Butter Chocolate Fudge, Chocolate Fudge Cheesecake, and so many others that the Chocoholic in you and your family will just LOVE! Let’s not forget that with winter (I know I don’t want to hear that word yet either!) coming up that it will also make some amazingly delicious hot chocolate that you can warm up with and YES! There is a recipe for making it!

Loving Earth has such an amazing selection of flavors for their chocolate bars as well! So the chocoholic in you will be able to find a several of your favorites and never get bored with them! They offer 72% Dark Chocolate, Lemon Cheesecake Caramel Chocolate, Creamy Coconut Mylk Chocolate, Turkish Delight Chocolate, Berry Crunch Hazelnut Mylk Chocolate, Salted Caramel Chocolate, Crunchy Mint Dark Chocolate, Raspberry Cashew Mylk Choclate…. is it just me or do they all sound like a chocolate heaven!?!?!

Now, if your like me, I hide my chocolate from the kids. That’s my little piece of heaven for those rough days, while I’m working, or at times I share with the family as a thank you when they help me with things around the house. But there are just times, where I like to have a good book, some amazing chocolate, and some quiet to enjoy both. Those times are rare so I love to relish them. I have to say that Loving Earth Chocolate really helped me to enjoy my quiet time. Now, I know I am not the only one that hides out from everyone in the family with their favorite things to enjoy by themselves….am I?

Now, don’t forget with the holiday’s coming up your going to want to pull out all the stops for your desserts! So be sure to let Loving Earth Chocolate Bars help you to make amazing desserts for your holiday table, your family will be amazed and in love with your holiday table. Now, don’t blame me if you become addicted to Loving Earth Chocolate bars! I’m just telling you what my experience with them was…. oh, who am I kidding, I will totally take the blame for it! lol

Super Hero Heat Holders And Joint Heat Holders Review #ChristmasGiftGuide

batman heatsocks

I received a pair of Joint Warmers, Batman Heat Holder Slipper Socks, and a pair of the Superman Heat Holder Slipper Socks to review with my son’s. My younger son has Ehlers Danloss, so his joints are always hurting him. So I was excited to see how or if they would help his joint pains.

joint heatsocks

We tried the Joint warmers first as when they arrived my son was having some joint pain. So I pulled them out of the box and had him slide them on his legs that were hurting. He loved the warm fuzzy feeling of the joint warmers. I let him wear them for a few hours and checked in with him. He said that his joints were feeling better and that he could bend his knees without them hurting. I could tell they were better because he was all over the place and playing with the kids. Where before he put them on he was just laying on his bed and not wanting to play. We tried them several times over the next few days as he had different joint pain and it seemed to be relieved of pain each time he wore them. This, I can’t begin to tell you is such a relief for us. He has a lot of joint pain so we are hoping that the Joint Warmers continue to help with his joint pain.

The boys then tried on their Batman and Superman Men’s Heat Holder slipper socks. They were instantly in love with them! They were so soft and fuzzy on the inside of the socks. My oldest son had come down with a cold and his feet instantly get cold when he is sick. So he just loved the way they kept his feet warm. My younger son just loved how they fit, the fuzzy inside and the heat also seemed to help with his feet pain as well. They were just so excited that they were in their favorite characters, so warm, and fit them great. The boys are very picky about their socks, but they were instantly in love with the Heat Holder socks.

superman heatsocks

They were so excited, they said when it’s -25 outside their feet will be nice and warm. Yes, we get down to -50 in the winter so warm socks are a must here in Wisconsin! So plenty of layers of clothes are needed here when it’s cold outside. They just loved that they would only need their Heat Holder super hero slipper socks to keep their feet warm. My youngest son will be using both his joint warmers and his Heat Holder super hero slipper socks this winter to help keep his pains at bay. We will definitely be buying more Heat Holder slipper socks and joint warmers as well. I have my eye on a perfect pair of Heat Holder slipper socks for me and some for my family for gifts this holiday season as well. You to can give the gift of warm feet and joints this holiday season and they carry other great gifts for everyone on your list as well!

New Doggy Doo Game Review #ChristmasGiftGuide

doggy Doo game

I received the New Doogy Doo Game by Goliath Games. When I opened the box the dog was just way to cute! My grandkids went just crazy over him. They wanted to take him for a walk. LOL! I told them we were going to play a game with the dog, they were so excited to hear they could play a game with him. My grandson was making barking noises, as he just loves dogs, so it was the perfect game for all of them to play together.

I set the game up for them put the “dog poo” into the dog’s mouth and got the game ready to go. So I had my grandson spin the spinner first. He received 1 click on the spinner. He clicked the leash one time, and then we went around till all the kids had a turn. When my granddaughter had her turn and the “poop” came out they were all amazed. She cleaned up the “poop” with her shovel and received her token. The kids were laughing and having a great time playing the game. I helped my grandson as he is 2 years old and wanted to play with the “big kids”.

My oldest granddaughter won the first game and by the time we had to stop for dinner all the kids had won at least one game. We have been playing it daily and they are still loving it and having a great time playing the game. It really is a fun game to play with the kids. We have been playing daily as they just love to watch the dog “poop” although they still want to take the dog for a walk. lol Their little eyes light up when I ask them if they want to play “Doggy Doo”. The object of the game is for a player to get 3 tokens to win the game. They must clean up 3 doggy doos to claim their tokens.

I also love that we now have a game that they love to play and is perfect for their ages. Not to mention we have been doing more and more “Unplugged time” so the kids are not in front of the T.v., no tablets, computers, and so on. So it’s a great way to have some family time and get them having fun and laughing as well. In our home we have Saturday and Sunday as “unplugged days” so we play games, go outside and play, and have fun together. Since we have been starting our umplugged days it has been so much fun and Doggy Doo makes it even more fun!

Doggy Doo, is a great game to give as a gift for the holidays or birthdays. You will love seeing the parents expression when they open it, thinking OMG! what is that! Of course once they start to play they will be totally addicted to the game. It’s a really fun game that the whole family will love to play! The fun will never end and their can always be a new winner of the game as well. They can blame you for their addiction to the game but you can smile knowing that the family is having fun because of your gift!

Instant Pot Ultra 6 qt. Review #ChristmasGiftGuide

instant pot ultra1

I received the Instant Pot, Ultra 6qt. to review for our Christmas gift guide. I was pretty excited to see what all the hype is about the Instant Pot is. I have seen a lot of facebook groups for recipes, pinterest was full of recipes, and many of my friends were raving about owning one. So I wanted to see if it lived up to all the hype.

When the Instant Pot Ultra arrived, I read through the instructions. I wanted to make sure I was using it properly for the review and well of course because it would be making our dinner. I looked at all the different features you could use to make different things in it. I decided to ignore all those features till I figured out what I wanted to make. I did the water test first as it stated in the directions. The test went well, so we were ready to make a dish for the family.

Since my son’s and I were sick, we wanted something with a lot of fresh veggies and something easy to eat for us. So I decided on making a delicious Beef Stew, which I have to say the family just LOVED! So much flavor and it really made the veggies and meat were perfect. It was so good that I had to make a 2nd pot of the Beef Stew as it was that big of a hit. They actually ate it all before I could even get a picture. The beef stew has gone on the family favorites list.

The next day I decided to steam some fresh corn on the cob to freeze. It was so easy to steam and then I put the corn into freezer bags to freeze for this winter so we can still have some of summer when it’s cold outside. It’s always a great way to get rid of some of the cabin fever we have when we can have something from summer to eat. So I love to freeze different veggies so that we can break up our meals with summer foods when it’s cold out. It is always a huge hit with the family. I can again through it into the instant pot and finish steaming it so that you get that fresh summer flavor. They are all so excited about that. So when it’s -25 outside, we can bring in some summer weather.

I also decided to make some Barbacoa Beef for tacos for our family. We love Barbacoa tacos so I was excited to see how it was from the Instant Pot Ultra. It came out perfectly, so juicy, had lots of flavor, and the tacos were just perfect. They really hit the spot for the family.

There are so many different things that I want to make still, I’m dying to make a cheesecake. However, I am waiting till I feel a little better to make one. The Instant Pot Ultra is just as amazing as they say and worth all the hype! It really makes some great meals, there are so many recipes to explore and make. I also love that it has the delay cooking time which is great for the hectic busy days that we all have. You can have your meals ready when you are as the Instant Pot Ultra will keep your meals warm till your ready to eat. I just love all the options on the Instant Pot Ultra. Even though I am still getting ready to use some of them, I can’t wait to make so many great meals for the family in Instant Pot Ultra. If your looking for a great kitchen appliance that will make your life easier, then look no further. The Instant Pot Ultra would also make an amazing gift for a bridal shower, Birthday or the holiday season. Give the gift of making someone’s life easier with some fabulous meals!

Capresso Glass Rapid Boil Water Kettle Review #ChristmasGiftGuide

Capresso water kettle1

I received the Capresso Glass Rapid Boil Water Kettle to review. Which I have to say couldn’t have arrived at a better time. My son had come down with an end of summer cold/flu. When he is sick he loves to have Green tea with Starmint candy and honey in it to help clear his sinuses. So I usually have to microwave 3 mugs of water at a time for him so that he can have plenty on hand and I won’t have to make it every 5 minutes for him.

Well, the first day of his cold/flu the Capresso Glass Rapid Boil Water Kettle arrived. I put the water in and it was just perfect. I didn’t have to keep making his tea, he was able to sit in his chair and make it himself. Which he loved doing even though he wasn’t feeling well. He could make it when ever he wanted and it was ready in minutes. He was so thrilled that he could make his tea on his own and he started to feel better as well. He used it for the couple of days he was sick and felt so much better. It was so easy to use that he was able to fill it with the water and then bring it right by him so it was available when he wanted it.

Capresso water kettle2

Two days later he was feeling better, but of course I came down with it so our Capresso Glass Rapid Boil Water Kettle has really been getting a workout between all of us taking turns being sick. I have to say it works so well, I just love the auto shut off as well in case you have med head and forget to turn it off. I’m looking forward to this winter as well. When we can make hot chocolate and other goodies to keep us warm this season. My son’s are so excited to be able to make their own hot drinks to stay warm when they want them.

It’s been wonderful for the family to make their own drinks and make my son’s more independent when they would like something to drink. The kettle is just perfect for the family, it holds 6 cups of water so that your ready for when your favorite drinks you can have them. I also love that my son’s can make their instant oatmeal all by themselves with it as well. It is really able to help make so many delicious drinks and foods for your family. Your children can be more independent and you will just love it as well. The family can have game night and make all their favorite drinks while they stay at their place at the game. Make life easier for yourself as well as your family with the Capresso Glass Rapid Boil Water Kettle. It would make the perfect gift for anyone on your list.

Trust me, as I’m writing this review I am enjoying a nice cup of green tea and working on getting over my cold. The kettle has made my life so much easier while being sick. Let the Capresso Glass Rapid Boil Water Kettle make your life easier as well.

Organic Slammer Superfood Snack Review #Organic #BackToSchool

organic slammers

We received the Organic Slammer Superfood Snack to review with my son’s and my grandbabies. I put them in the fridge to chill and then after lunch, I gave each of the kids a Organic Slammer Superfood Snack. They at first looked at me not sure what it was. So I opened them up and told them to try it.

Next thing I knew they each had 3 pouches for all the kids. They were a huge hit! They loved the flavors of them, and they couldn’t get enough of them. If I would have let them they would have ate them all in one sitting. They asked if they could have more later and I told them they could so that kept them from sneaking any more of them. So I asked them what they thought of the Organic slammers Superfood snack and they said they really liked the fruit flavors, that they tasted really good. They liked that they could more drink it and it didn’t make a mess (I also liked that I didn’t have a mess to clean up!).

My grandson, who makes a mess with everything he eats was able to eat them without making a mess as well. Not to mention he kept asking for more! He is pretty picky about his foods but he loved the Organic slammers Superfood snack. The girls and my son’s all said that they loved how it wasn’t to sweet because there is no refined sugar in the snacks, there is also no artificial flavors or colors as well. I also loved that it offers 500 mg of Omgega 3 per serving size, no sodium, and are made of pureed fruits. A great healthy snack for the kids and they would be perfect for their lunch boxes for school lunches, going to the park, or dare I say, even okay for them to eat in the car because they aren’t messy! So they would be perfect for long trips!

I have some very picky eaters, so it’s a great way for me to get extra fruits into them. I love that I won’t have to fight with them to eat it as well. They want to have them all the time, so there is no battles of “YES! You have to eat this!” They are the first ones to ask for them! I call that a parent win! The Organic slammers Superfood snack also included fruits that they won’t eat but they didn’t even know they were in there. So that was a win that they would eat them without fighting me. I also loved that several of the fruits carry antioxidants which I love for the kids to have.

The flavor choices blend so well together. There are some great flavors offered like Apple, Strawberry, Cherry, Chia , also Acai, Apple, strawberry as well as Bananas, Blueberries, Butternut Squash, Greek Yogurt, and Yumberry and also Strawberry, Kiwi, Watermelon, apple, banana, and beet and other yummy flavors. There are sure to be a number of different flavors that your children will just love and that you will love them eating. You can purchase Organic Slammers Superfood snacks at your local Target as well.
